Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Muffin Recipe
The air is getting chilly and hoodies and collars get pulled up as we walk our kids to school. What is better to greet the family at the kitchen then the yummy warm smell of freshly baked pumpkin chocolate chip muffins.
A bonus here is that pumpkin (even from a can) is high in dietary fiber, Vitamin A , C, E and B6, Iron, Folate, Magnesium, rich in potassium which is great for blood pressure levels, and so much more!
Here is a simple and yummy recipe that makes about 14-16 muffins. I use paper liners for quick and easy clean up! I make this every October since I had kids… that is a long time.
